Cutting-Gray, Joanne

Woman as 'Nobody' and the Novels of Fanny Burney.

The author describes how Burney worked with female namelessness in her early novels and used it to create her fluid heroines. She also devotes a chapter to a postmodern reading of each novel. Evelina, Cecelia, Camilla, culminate in The Wanderer, with a heroine "Incognita" who refuses to name herself. A fascinating entry into a deeper appreciation of one of Austen's favorite authors. Excellent condition, with mylar protector. University Press of Florida. 1992. Hb, Dj. 1992. USED. $30.00
